Pinolere Museum of Ethnography and Basketry

Rural traditions on display in La Orotava.

In La Orotava in the north, within the vast Pinolere nature park, this museum managed by the town's cultural association occupies a pair of houses and offers a graphic overview and recreation of the area's rural traditions, particularly of agriculture and ranching. Another section devoted to basketmaking is housed in three barns; here you'll learn about the production, processing, and commercialisation of plant fibres, which has been the traditional mainstay of the area's economy. There's also an exhibition of tools and materials. Afterward take some time to explore the town, which breathes tradition in every lane.
